I'm having some trouble with Problem Set 1, Part 3. The first two parts were easy, but I'm a little confused on how to implement bisection searching. I understand the concept well, but not sure what conditional to use to know when I've found the minimum monthly payment (mmp). I have looked at a few different examples and tested them, but I am getting incorrect answers. I thought perhaps the problem was that the floats were not limited to two decimal places, but adding round() to the upper and lower bounds seems to result in an infinite loop. Using an example from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12820003/bisection-search?rq=1
